I trade NQ with stops at all times. Let's say 5 NQ contracts with a max of 5 pt stop. Mentally I'm treating this as a $500 max loss for any single trade however I am aware that there is nothing that would prevent the market from gapping through my stop without my stop loss order being executed, for instance a major terrorist attack or some other really bad news. So my question is this, how do traders prepare or plan for such a worst-case scenario? It doesn't sound like my losses are bounded by any real amount - how does a prudent money management plan take a "once per decade event" into account?
